Zero-Mile, Jaw-Dropping Ferrari J50 Is For Sale – Spare A Kidney?

Over the past decade, some absolutely stunning supercars have rolled out of Maranello’s gates, like the LaFerrari hypercar and the 488 Pista. However, we think the J50 is the best-looking production car to emerge from Ferrari in recent memory.

Built to celebrate 50 years of Ferrari operations in Japan, the J50 is based on the 488 Spider but has a unique exterior bodywork. Production was capped at just 10 units, and now one of them seems to be for sale.

An ad was recently listed on James Edition, but details are scarce. All we know is that the J50 being sold is located in Japan, comes with a title, and only has delivery miles under its belt.

Ferrari never publicized the asking price for the J50; however, it is believed to have retailed for €2 million to €3 million ($2.26 – $3.39 million). Price for this zero-mile example is available on request, although the exotic car market being what it is, it’s very likely the original owner is selling it for a significant premium.

As the J50 is based on the 488 Spider, it uses a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 delivering a very healthy 680 HP to the rear wheels. And while the interior is largely identical to the 488’s, the bodywork is truly unique.

Every exterior panel of the car is new and the front fascia incorporates a wide mesh grille with thin headlights and a hood with two massive air intakes. In addition, the J50 sits on bespoke wheels, has an overhauled engine cover and decklid and, unlike the 488, features four taillights.

Some may dismiss it as Ferrari milking its customers with a dressed-up 488 Spider. For Ferrari fans and petrolheads alike, though, it’s a piece of art – and a very fast at that.

    Meh… a snobbish “pimp my ride” 488 for snobbish collectors. 488 is much cleaner and cohesive and even that looks like an overdesigned 458. This looks like a lowered evora with some bodykit and facelift. And what they were thinking with that boat-like nose?

      I’m not feelin it either. I remember seeing it awhile back, didn’t leave an impression, cuz I totally forgot about it until today hehe.

    So much German car and sports/expensive car news, (with the occasional Japanese or Korean here and there.) It kind of gets boring after a while. GM, Ford and Chrysler news are rare these days.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I like it, but I don’t like it that much.

    A 458 will do nicely.

  • Six_Tymes

  • Blade t

    Ferrari is genius, take a 488 and slap a new body on it and charge 3million…lol good for them..

    • Point

      Style is what you pay for. Then yes, just slap a different and sick body and that’s enough.

  • SteersUright

    Very nice car.

  • KAG25
